Hello,

We now have our first 2000 miles RVing in USA. We live in the UK and have a fith wheel in NC.

Initially purchased an A class but my wife did not like my motorcycle as the other mode of transport and so we moved to a 2005 Jayco 34 Designer and just had delivered to my site a 2002 Chevy 3500 dually duramax.

I hope to return in August and visit my local hills in Virginia etc.

For us what makes America great are the people as well as the spectacular country.

Bernard & Lyn

Hello,

My approach was to buy land with a postal address in North Carolina. This is in a gated community with good security and has services avaialble to all lots. All paperwork was carried out online and by telephone/fax I have deeds of ownership and my yearly service charge is only $400

land in north Carolina is cheap and I can fly direct to RDU airport which is 30 miles from my lot.

Next to decide on what type of RV first I purchased an A class motorhome which we have just changed to a fithwheel and a pick up truck.

Insurance needs to be purchased on line we use Progresive

Motor Registration was carried out when I arrived in the USA at the local motor vehicle tax office who also provided the legal service re title transfer

I have a US bank account for paying bills online such as the service charge, insurance and for electricity

I pay county taxes by cash to county hall

I have a US post box number which the local post office gave to me with a key.

I have a wall mart pay as you use phone - wall mart are great

My entry visa was used as a social security number by banks etc

I hope this helps if you need more please get back to me.

Regards Bernard

Well, welcome to what appears to be another traveler from afar, Welcome Thenosyone !!

and I have traveled so very few miles from my Western U.S. origin, that it sure would be interesting to hear of your local areas.

and Bernard, you have researched your foray here well. Good job. And your email was an interesting portrayal. Sir, you are certainly an Old School biker,

I wish both of you guys the best of times, and I would be more than willing to help if you have any questions or need any help,

Mike
